Where Were You

Tags: love poem

Where were you 
When the love died
Did you notice
Did you care
We are passing like ghosts 
Unaware
An empty hollow feeling 
An echoing shout of sorrow
Of loss
Fills my very being
Bounces off the chambers
Of my abandoned core.

You encompassed
Inhabited
Were indwelling for so long
But have now vacated
And the source
The reason
The purpose for the change
Escapes my vision
My seeking
My dissolving understanding
Of your 
Emotions
Your
Silence.

The ultimate horror
Of lost love
Fills me with dread
It is dead
The love
Has died
And did I notice
Did I care
For where was I
Was I aware
Will I ever know
Why we continue
To pass
Unaware
As phantoms
Faint reflections of the mirrors
To our soul 
In our hearts
Our eyes
Filling with the tears of remembrance
And regret.

So 
Where were you 
When the love died.
